THE GENIUS OF LIQUID LTD’S ‘I WALKED.’ AMERICANA MEETS HIP-HOP
NEW LIQUID LTD single, ‘I Walked,’ is a soulful hip-hop meets Americana track, full of gritty rap bars, a restrained rustic troubadour lilt, reflecting on the Montreal artist’s life journey, from struggles to enlightenment in consciousness.
Liquid Ltd, aka Stephen ‘Liquid’ Hawley has again teamed with Brooklyn’s Billboard number one charting, Emmy nominated producer, ‘Rench’ to bring a powerful portrait of desire facing the reality of inner-city life, and concrete meeting the dirt road.
“It’s a song of the miles travelled, escaping conflict and pain, and being forced at a young age to make life changing decisions,” explained Hawley. “It is a story of consciousness in consequences in the battle of bad and good.”
The video for ‘I Walked’ was shot in the infamous ‘Fattal’ artist compound in St. Henri, and Liquid’s own neighbourhood, ‘Our Lady of Peace’ in the West End of Montreal.
“It’s a marginalized community layered with many cultures from Irish to Jamaican and where I have lived since hitch hiking to Montreal at 16 years old,” adds Hawley.
“I wanted to capture the feeling I felt when I was 16 years old. The highs and lows, bad and good and the struggle to find a way in the maze.”
